ABSTRACT

For a very short period of three days, ten male rats were exposed to chloroquine phosphate injection intraperitoneally /IP) for three days. The treated rats received 0.125ml/100g body weight of chloroquine phosphate injection intraperitoneally. Control rats received the same amount of normal saline intraperitoneally. Stereologically, the estimated absolute volume of the lining epithelium of the treated rats small intestine were reduced compared with controls.
